hillary clinton was doing. >> and barack obama. that was the administration's stated goal. the real answer is that the middle east, regardless of whether the united states achieves energy independence any time soon, the middle east is a geopolitical center that is not easy to pivot away from. i think that daunting list of challenges that you just ran over suggests why that is. i also think if you look at what senator-turned-secretary kerry's agenda is, you get the sense of this is still very much a political figure. he spent 29 years in the senate which prizes a kind of face-to-face diplomacy, if you will, the handshake, the look 'em in the eye. that was a mission that then senator kerry often undertook for barack obama when he was the chairman of the senate foreign relations committee. he went to afghanistan. he met with karzai. i think this is a somewhat familiar role for him. it's very different, by the way, than the way that hillary clinton used her time and credibility in the job. >> ifill: whether it's syria or what we just saw in afghanistan or whether it's worrying about the red li
government promised former secretary of state hillary clinton to inspect all of iranian flights so far that's reportedly not happening. now secretary kerry's turn to get it done. >> good morning. wink, wink, nudge, nhung from the iraqis to the iranians. the revolutionary guard soldiers to head from iran into syria to help assad. the united states has only pressured the iraqis privilege atly up until now. the fact they are doing so publicly and sharing intelligence means the shaming of iraq now begins. fox news was the first organization to report on the freight. the combination of everything from syrian airliners to shankar go planes. eye rain wran cargo planes, supply anything that syria needs. money, weapons and ammunition, soldiers. all those kinds of things from tehran into various bases all around syria. western intelligence sources confirmed to fox news that the video you are watching now is amateur video of those planes landing inside of syria. of course, no secrets the flights take place multiple times a week. it is no secret that the iranians support the syrians. what has the unite
on the people of israel, bill clinton, george w. bush, comes as president, cold in nature, was distancing himself to israel. the message the israelis got across the spectrum was he doesn't like us. he doesn't talk to us. and he doesn't care about us. >> rose: that's the perception in israel. >> that is corct. and of coue it was reinforced by the fact that almost simultaneously to his election israel chose the right wing prime minister who replaced olmert who was wing to go a long distin to make a palestinian deal. >> rose: and before that barak. >> an before that ariel sharon who took a bold step in gaa -- gaza. so the israeli, the israeli political system responded to threats to the threat of iran, to the threat of hezbollah, israel, between 2006 and 2009, went to the right. both the public opinion and the government. so the drama of the collision between the president seeking to draw close to arab and muslims and israeli government veering to the right, intensified the tension that manifested itself at the time. and add to this the fact that between the president and the prime minister
-sex marriage. hillary clinton, who if she wants to run in 2016, she's going to -- she's in favor of same-sex marriage. any democrat who runs has to be in favor of it. republicans at this point still undecided. >> it's a more dicey territory. quickly, it's amazing to me that people forget, president obama, then senator obama, and then senator clinton, both oppose gay marriage and supported civil unions in the '08 presidential campaign five years ago. now, it's march madness so the tournament is over for me after georgetown. but the good thing is, i still have senate madness. i have the nbc political unit, i can still focus on a bracket and not shed tears. tell me where we stand. >> four match-ups we want to point to today. the 1-16s versus the 8-9s. and ted kennedy, our overall number one, the legislator versus lloyd benson who won our play-in match-up. >> benson beats graham. >> benson beats graham. and lots of votes online, almost 1,000 votes, maybe more. so everyone get out and vote today. and robert byrd versus tom daschle on the other side. so robert bird who did so much for west vir
secretary of state hillary clinton getting on the right side of history in her view and the view of her party coming up with a video changing the clinton view on doma and in the republican party, we're hearing from all across the spectrum that regardless of what the supreme court does the party needs to have a more libertarian view on this. republicans are telling us it would be a huge help with fund-raising especially in the big states of new york, california, and florida. if the republican party were to be more open on this. and people are telling us that investors don't want to invest what they think losing national elections which could continue to be the case if republicans stay very narrow on this issue. republicans i talked to even extremely conservative ones, very christian conservative republicans are telling me the polls they have seen in the last couple of weeks have been eye-opening, showing not only that young people very heavily in favor of gay marriage, but if you extrapolate that a little bit in just 10, 20 years, this is going to be 70/30 issue that republicans are goin
department during the clinton and bush administrations and joined by matt center for american progress. seems like i just spoke to you last night. tell us what this speech means. does this mean the administration is willing to put forth a serious effort towards brokering peace in the middle east and specifically between israelis and palestinians or is this a tremendous speech that doesn't have the substance necessary to carry forth? >> i think it is a speech that underscores obama's speech in rhetoric. unfortunately i don't think it was tremendous in substance. the key aspects what's really necessary for a two state solution, halt to settlements, that was completely dropped from obama's prior substance filled speeches. unfortunately this plan or idea isn't going anywhere. >> why did he drop it? didn't want to insult the israelis to their face? didn't want to challenge them that toughly? >> i think the whole trip was not to make peace in the middle east to make peace with congress at home to pursue a domestic agenda to get work done here in the united states, a realization he needs congress be
. remember back what bill clinton as president did when the same netanyahu was prime minister disagreed with clinton. he paid a political price because israelis loved clinton. this is not the same with obama. the president would benefit from the trust from israelis even when he has disagreements with their prime minister. not to say the president owes israelis anything. he is not their president. he is the american one. they don't deserve his love. but it would be expedient for him to gain their trust when he disagrees with the prime minister, more than when he agrees with them. >> what message is teheran taking from all this? this visit today. and when we talk about iran a year or so away from having a nuclear weapon, are we inching closer toward a military conflict? we can't be sanctioning them any more than we already are. >> i think first, a very important point for both the prime minister and president is that teheran here a similar message. it is important because in a sense we have a game of chicken going on. iranians, if they are convinced that u.s. threat for use of force is cr

to hillary clinton for president. mersaides and richard, welcome to both of you. americans are sick of this. look at the debt clock this. thing keeps whizzing up. the debt is mounting. every sunday, i show this. it has gone up another trillions, it seems, theres and multi-millions. mercedes, how do we stop that in its tracks and make it go the other way? >> we can't stop it when you have the budget plan that senator murray has pushed through. 50 of all, because it has such little support from american voters. for example, we saw a poll saying that only 28% of likely voters supported the senator murray plan. the majority of americans do believe that we need to cut the dev silt by $5 trillion, need to balance the budget and cut spending with no need for raising taxes to get the economy going and this is the way we ensure that our recovery -- we could really have an economic recovery, not by the budget which has been passed, which is the budget to nowhere. >> if the americans want it. how come the politicians are not doing it? mercedes? >> the reason is obviously, even when you look at senator
so we can offer u.s. assistance. going back to last summer. hillary clinton, the head of the c.i.a. agreed to set up a program to vet and support. vet first, support and shape the opposition that was emerging. the president said no. with people worried in syria and critical of the white house taking a step back approach, one is it will engulf the region. secretary of state john kerry going to iraq and pleading with al-awlakpleadingwith al-ma. we have a u.s. weapons and troops to defend saudi arabia. we have a u.s. official acknowledging that the uptick in vehemence iraq is from the militants who have al-qaeda links who are fighting in syria. then we have a problem with the opposition where we have stepped back. there are al-qaeda linked militants. a troubling situation. >> you mention that kerry has been meeting with al-maliki and what they said about whether or not they are allowing the air space used by the iranians. >> anything that supports the president assad is proble problematic. i made it clear that iran are helping to sustain president assad and his regime. >> shannon:
on almost a daily basis. first, secretary hillary clinton helped to spearhead the reforms bat created a coherent syrian opposition council. now you have the secretary kerry, who is deeply involved in that effort as well. we are providing not just advice, but training and capacity in order for that political opposition to maintain links within syria and be able to provide direct services for people inside of syria, including the relief efforts that obviously we are seen here in jordan, but there is a whole bunch of people internally displaced inside of syria who need help. i think that what your question may be suggesting maybe is, why haven't we simply gone in militarily? and you know, i think it is fair to say that the united states oftentimes it finds itself in situations where if it goes in militarily, and if it does not, then people say, why are you doing something militarily? and you know, my response at this stage is to make sure that what we do contribute to bringing an end to the bloodshed as quickly as possible. and working in a multilateral context, an international context,
did this and president johnson did this and in my judgment president clinton did this remarkably wem. and i think president obama is getting better. today he's meeting with 13 senators tonight at the jefferson hotel in washington. which maybe our conference helped move along. but it is tough -- i want to mention one other thing. it's tough because it's hard tore deal with the congress and sometimes it's unpless tonight deal with the congress. but there is no other choice, the president must engage. but one of the other issues i want to raise quickly is another factor, and charlie you talked about this a bit. in the days we were building this country, the space program and all these wonderful things it was easier to work together. let's look at the things they are dealing with today, sequester, how are we going to cut medicare, social security, how are we going to get the budget down. these are tough. these are politically difficult positions to take. in an environment where everything is just cutting and reducing, it's not natural for people to enjoy doing the job under those circums
this as good as anybody, and my judgment president clinton did this remarkably well. i think president obama is getting better. today, he's meeting with 13 senators at the jefferson hotel in washington. maybe that will help our conference move along. but it is -- it is tough because -- i want to mention one other thing. it is tough because it is harder to deal with the congress and sometimes it is unpleasant to deal with the congress. but there is no other choice. the president must engage and it is a learning experience. one other issues i wanted to raise quickly. another factor and charlly talked about this. -- charlie talked about this. it was easier to work together. look at what they are dealing with, sequester, cutting, how do we cut medicare? when are we going to cut social security? how do we get the budget down? >> these what i call tough -- almost impossiblely difficult positions to take. in an environment where everything is reducing, cutting, it is not natch for people to enjoy doing the job under those circumstances. they don't feel positive to each other and friendly to reach o
. and that's an area where we have been involved on almost a daily basis. first second hillary clinton helped to pespearhead the effor to form a coherent syrian opposition council. now you've got secretary kerry, deeply involved in that effort as well. we're providing not just advice, not just words, but we're providing resources, training, capacity in order for that political opposition to maintain links within syria and to be able to provide direct services to people inside of syria, including the kinds of relief efforts that obviously we're seeing here in jordan. but there are a whole bunch of people internally displaced inside of syria who need help. i think that what your question may be suggesting is why haven't we simply gone in militarymilit. i think it's fair to say that the united states often finds itself in situation where it goes in militarily then it's criticized for going in militarily and if it doesn't go in militarily. then people say why aren't you doing something militarily? and my response at this stage is to make sure that what we do contributes to bringing an end to the
, hillary clinton at the end of the week. and we know the president's evolution on these issues related to doma. this was john lewis, 1996, talking about the civil right, the right of a human being to marry another. their there has been a long struggle for civil right for gay and lesbian people. and there were people early on who recognized this was a fundamental civil rights issue. the reason people are coming to that view is because of people coming out in their countries and whether it is john roberts or other people in the country realizing that they are brothers and sisters and cousins of people who are gay and lesbian. and it is inevitable. watching ralph reed with the most ridiculous argument i've ever heard of the many ridiculous arguments against gay marriage. he's arguing the only reason people get player sid to have children. people get married because they want to be in a loving, committed relationship with each other. there is no reason that fundamental right should be denied. >> to steve's point, ralph reed was not discussing the lawful he is talking about religion and emo
, 185 different welfare programs and block grants the largest and most expensive ones just as clinton did with aid to families with children. we have this reform of entitlement and reform of these welfare programs and tax reform taking the top rate on individuals to 25% and the bottom rate to 10%. now we go from 10 up to 44 and the corporate rate which is 35% right now. the average in europe is 25 so we compete internationally. we tax our companies and our manufacturing companies more harshly than they do theirs. we want to take that rate to 25. i would rather be better than europe and the canadians are at 17%. i preferred the canadian rate than the european average so the republicans and democrats in their two budgets really show who they are. there is also a third budget which is the congressional budget which is more liberal democrats and they do massive new taxes on top of the ones i discussed. you have a sense of there are some democrats who want to go even further into big government and patty than patty murray and president obama. >> host: americans for tax reform is best known
to today's team. richard socarides, former senior adviser to president clinton now a writer for newyorker.com. former congressman connie mack and former member of congress, mary bono mack from california. they know each other. thanks, guys, for coming in. >> thank you. >> 28 minutes after the hour. security is tight today for a public memorial for colorado's prison chief. that's because there's a lot of question about what or who may have motivated his killer. >> that's right, tom clements was laid to rest yesterday in a private funeral. he was shot and killed tuesday in his driveway. police believe 28-year-old white supremacist and parolee evan spencer ebel pulled the trigger. he was killed thursday in a shoot-out in texas. it's not clear if he acted alone. jim spellman is in colorado springs. officials there are taking no chances with so many high profile public officials in one place today, are they? >> absolutely not. the fear is tom clements was murdered potentially as part of a conspiracy or a hit guided by somebody in this white supremacist prison gang that evan ebel allegedly was
, a former ambassador to n.a.t.o. and secretary under president clinton and now you've got president obama morsi discussing the collapse of egypt. and that's something we don't want over here and that's one of the reasons we're keeping an eye over there. >> i don't see the prospect of the state collapsing, but i think that morsi's actions showed why people feared having a muslim brotherhood government in power, that it would be a one person, one vote, one time experience, and i have to say, the fact that the military so far is silent, could indicate they're prepared to acquiesce in this. although people have said that the brotherhood and the military could never come to an agreement on rule in egypt. i've always believed that's a possibility. so i think this is very, very serious and it's one reason i favor suspending both economic and military aid to egypt until this gets resolved. >> rick, where is this going? because you know, they got rid of hosni mubarak out there because he was dictatorial and ruled with an iron fist and wanted something more akin to democracy and now you've fot pres
clinton? he came here four times as president. he was so deeply involved, we were both covering the white house in those days, in the camp david process and others, the israelis miss that, a guy who can draw the maps, president bush didn't get that involved. president obama hasn't gotten that involved. they're different people, personally and how they carry themselves politically and in their philosophies. the prime minister in cracking jokes when the president has landed is trying to say, i'm trying and now we'll see if the president is trying. >> we'll get back to jessica in a moment. tom foreman, this trip comes at a time when so many israelis feel increasingly vulnerable due in large part to the major political changes occurring in the region and their neighborhood. tom is taking a closer look at that region. what are you seeing, tom? >> john made references of being able to draw the map there. it is important to bear in mind the map here. look at where the president is visiting here, he's going to really a small part of a small area, but a very important part as you know, with stops
and secretary clinton and now secretary kerry the mandate to push for a two-state solution. it's been difficult. i do think this is a significant visit. his first visit as president and secretary kerry obviously has come earlier and is going to be staying later and doing a little shuttle diplomacy. the palestinians are very skeptical. but i do believe that they would view the president's visit and look for any opportunity to get these talks restarted. of course, they've been on the sidelines, waiting for what they see as a critical issue, the settlements to halt. israelis have said, look, we're ready to talk at any point as long as you don't put p preconditions on these talks. >> i'm glad you brought that up. ambassador, i'm glad you brought that up. really interesting report in "the new york times" today says an internal palestinian memo suggests that president abbas may no longer call for the israelis to publicly state they will halt the settlements. in other words, they're not going to make that a precondition to negotiations anymore. if this is true, would that be a significant development
there with quickly questioning paul's math there mentioning that bill clinton, of course, did not inhale. >>> some adventure seekers getting way too close for comfort with some great white sharks off the coast of south africa. take a look, folks. this is just like a scene out of -- >> whoa! whoa! >> oh, my gosh! >> the tourists thought they were inside that shark cage as great whites just checked out the bait dangling outside of the barge. but one shark skipped that bait got straight in towards the divers. his entire head went inside the cage, narrowly missing two divers. as frightening as this looks nobody got hurt and the man who shot that incredible video brian plumber will be our guest in the eight clock hour eastern time on "starting point." you heard the unbleeped version. >> it's sort of fantastic. words that i've never heard before. 18 minutes after the hour right now. even if you are not washing in on the stock market you could be feeling the effects of gas prices this morning. christine romans shows us where both are headed. coming up next. i'm a conservative investor. but that doesn't m
things. for instance, first term of the obama administration, secretary clinton tries to signal friendship, february 2009. the second month of the administration. they go on a bender for more than a year. so i think what we're doing by going there first we're feeding their already inflated sense of self-importance. i don't think this trip is going to work. adam: there have been i don't want to say military skirmishes, but instances where they cut off u.s. navy vessels in international waters. that happened three or four years ago. there is the incident of the cyberattacks which have been traced to china from the united states. secretary lew would be discussing that with chinese leaders. why would he be discussing that perhaps not mr. hagel or secretary kerry, secretary of state? >> secretary kerry will discuss it a couple weeks time when he goes to beijing. every administration official is doing this. the reason is last tuesday the director of national intelligence james clapper identified cyber attacks as the number one security threat to the united states. we all know where th
. you might say the clinton and bush position of being close to israel. in the first term he wanted to create distance. he was kind of appealing to the arab countries and that's over. he's not saying-- he's kind of changed his position and the question, does he really mean it or is it just talk? >> we asked at the beginning what did president obama accomplish his goal? here is what the president said about what he intended to do in israel. listen. >> put yourself in their shoes. look at the world through their eyes. it's not fair that a palestinian child cannot grow he up he-- up in a state of their own. >> clayton: and the president said he wanted the opportunity to speak directly to the israeli people at a time when they're obviously dealing with some major, major problems as it relates to the palestinian people and syria, iran and others, did he accomplish his goal? >> i think he accomplished a the lot of it. he made himself seem friendlier to israel and kind of put the palestinian issue to the side. and because iran and syria are so much more important. he told the palestinians
president clinton had seen president assad in geneva in january 1994. and prior to the trip, we had, you know, the prime minister conveyed to us what it is he wanted to see come out of it. and we actually produced what it is he wanted to see come out of it. so i walked into the meeting with rabin feeling highly confident, you know, all right, we did what you asked. and the first thing he did was immediately devalue what i came with. now, why did he do it? because he knew i was coming to ask something of him. and if you go into these kinds of meetings and the expectations are very high, then each leader is suddenly worried about what you're going to ask of them. when the expectations are low, you're in a much better position to have a serious conversation, and you can actually explore, all right, what are the possibilities here. but maybe the way you frame that conversation is by talking about what are the consequences of not getting anything done with each side? and if the consequences are severe enough, how can we think together about what it is that could be possible, and where could t
